DISCLAIMER

GPCN FORMAT:           CUSTOMER

DESCRIPTION AND PURPOSE

      Dear Valued Customer/Distributor:
     
     
      Motorola's Semiconductor Products Sector (SPS) will be reorganized
      into a subsidiary of Motorola, Inc. effective 04 April 2004 under
      the name Freescale Semiconductor, Inc. as part of the process of
      effecting our previously announced separation from Motorola.
     
      As a result, we will begin making changes to the marking of
      products, packaging and documentation to reflect the new company
      name. The actual products will retain the same part numbers that
      are currently in use.
     
      Notable changes include:
     
      Shipping boxes, labels, and documentation will begin the transition
      process to display the Freescale Semiconductor company name and
      logo. Initially this will be accomplished by applying a Freescale
      Semiconductor label in addition to Motorola labeling. This will
      continue until the inventory of existing packing material is
      depleted and replaced by boxes printed with the Freescale
      Semiconductor markings.
     
      Manufacturing will begin the transition process of marking each
      product with the Freescale Semiconductor logo replacing the Motorola
      logo. Customers may receive product marked with either logo during
      the transition period. The product part number will not change.
     
      The changes described will have no impact on form, fit or function
      of the product currently being used by customers.
